Summer and it’s glorious bounty of fresh fruit may be over with the change in seasons, but there are still many great fruits out there during Autumn that can make delicious desserts. Two of these are blackberries and pears, which combine easily with a few simple ingredients to make a warm, comforting dessert. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it is divine.

  2. Delicious!! I topped the crumble with some additional fresh berries before eating, so good. And I used gluten free flour and oats. Thanks for sharing this treat!
